There was a time a few years ago when it seemed like every movie coming out was a CGI animal movie.  Talking lions, talking squirrels, talking fish, talking dinosaurs, talking whatever--if it couldn't talk in real life, it was a strong contender to star in a CGI movie.

I decided the appropriate reaction to this would be to point at each poster I saw for a new, awful-looking CGI animal movie, and exclaim, "Oh, shit!" in a really excited, surprised way, followed by the name of the movie.  I got my girlfriend and her brother and sister doing it too, I think.

Come to think of it, there are still a lot of CGI animal movies coming out.  So how about this:  Why don't we all start pointing at the posters and saying, "Oh, shit, Guardians of the Owls!" or whatever?  It'll be a game, like shouting, "Punch buggy yellow, no punch backs!" whenever you see a yellow VW beetle.  But don't punch anyone.  Just point and scream a mild profanity.

Also, don't do it if a little kid is around.
